About this project

STORY:

One Year Later as the title suggests takes place one year after a zombie apocalypse.

Carter, an apocalypse survivor, has been living in the forest for months as a means of avoiding infected locations.  As Carter moves through the woods he stumbles across a cabin which is occupied by a Man and a young boy.  Carter makes a deal with the Man in exchange for some fresh water and supplies, but soon learns that there's a much darker side to the Man who lives in the woods.


PURPOSE FOR RAISING MONEY:

What do we need money for?  You name it: equipment rentals, location fees, costumes, props, hair/make-up, food for the cast and crew, compensating all cast and crew, etc. With your generous support, principal photography for One Year Later is being planned to begin in August 2012.


ABOUT US:

Joshua D. Nelson - Director
Born and raised in Los Angeles, writer/director/producer Joshua D. Nelson has always loved going to the movies.  It wasn't until his college years that Joshua decided to exchange his zoology major for one in the Theater Arts and divert his focus into mastering film.  After producing numerous shorts, Joshua went on to obtain his Bachelor of Arts degree in "Theater, Film & Dance" and to lecture a course at Humboldt State University for the 44th Annual Humboldt Film Festival.  He produced the dark sci-fi feature Flea, the quirky mockumentary The Making Of, the romantic comedy Box Office Romance and has worked on television shows like Discovery Channel's Reign of the Dinosaurs, Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot and A&E's Ugly House.  Joshua actively continues to develop his own material today and is very excited to realize his latest project One Year Later.

Alex Costello - Producer
Raised in Sacramento, California, Alex has always had a strong passion for the movies.  So, he went on to attend Humboldt State University and graduated with a Theater Arts degree with a film emphasis in 2008.  Later, he moved down to Orange County to attend Chapman University for a Master's Degree in Film and Television Producing.  He produced a variety of short films while at Chapman spanning from horror films to off-beat comedies to westerns.  Since graduating from Chapman in 2010, Alex has worked on a variety of film jobs.  And for the last year and a half, he has been working steadily in the Los Angeles office for the national TV news show Inside Edition.  Alex continues looking to help and produce future film projects, and he hopes that this film One Year Later will be another great creative endeavor.

Matt St. Charles - Director of Photography
Matt St. Charles has worked in professional video production full time since 2002.  He cut his teeth at a small production house, where he produced dozens of powerful commercials for a myriad of clients.  He has directed two feature films, Remote Control Grandpa and The Making Of, served as cinematographer on two more, A River of Skulls and Flea, and produced and shot hundreds of commercials and short films spanning every genre.  In 2005 he started his own production company, which he runs today, much to the satisfaction of his clients.

Omari Howard - Lead Actor, playing the role of Carter
Omari Howard was born and raised in Los Angeles, California.  An avid movie-goer since the age of nine, he spent almost every other weekend of his youth attending the movies before or after trips to Universal Studios.  He got his first starring role in high school where he played the title character in an original piece called What of Joseph?.  Afterwards, he attended Humboldt State University; graduating with dual bachelors in Philosophy as well as Theater, Film and Dance.  During his attendance, Omari performed in many productions including an ensemble role in Maurice Ogden's The Hangman, super-sonic attorney Kelvin Valer in the original webisode series Deathless; the lead role of Daniel Wolf in Patrick Marber's Closer; and a brief cameo in the short indie-drama Pier 41.  All the while, Omari has been studying and practicing a variety of martial arts, which he looks forward to putting to the test on his next starring role as Carter in One Year Later.

FAQ

  • A hard answer to give prior to making the movie, but based the script length and the action in the story, the film will probably be around 10 to 15 minutes long. But it could be a little bit more.

    Last updated:
  • A couple of reasons actually, including the following:

    1. The producer and director are both very familiar with the area.
    2. The producer and director have a lot of connections with local crew, which allows for a smoothly run set and familiarity among crew members.
    3. It really fits the story. The beautiful redwood trees and lush forest really fit the atmosphere that the story requires.
